Introducing the foundations of the Technology of Participation (ToP) approach, two powerful techniques for structuring effective conversations and building group consensus – 2 days
“How can I have more purposeful & productive conversations, bring out the wisdom of a group, encourage feedback between people, and reach shared awareness in meetings? How can I generate and weave together a diverse range of ideas, develop creative solutions and build a group consensus?”
Group Facilitation Methods provides a structured introduction to the ToP Focused Conversation and Consensus Workshop methods, which form the foundations of the ToP Action Planning method, Participatory Strategic Planning and other applications.
This May 20-21 course in Brussels is scheduled in partnership with Social Platform, the largest platform of European rights and value-based NGOs working in the social sector; and it is provided under license with ICA:UK, the participation & development charity. It was at my last course with Social Platform in Brussels in December that I piloted Three dimensions of the facilitator role – a focused conversation with video.
Also coming up, and subject of a future post – Group Facilitation Methods and Participatory Strategic Planning, April 2-3 & 5-6 in Moscow (in Russian with interpretation), in conjunction with the 5th annual Russian Facilitators Conference.
